On February 11, 2016, at 3 PM EST, I’ll be giving a security webinar for MSSQLTips. It’s titled Performing a SQL Server Security Risk Assessment. Here’s the abstract:
You have one or more SQL Servers and you want to assess the security of each. What’s a priority? What puts your organization at the greatest risk? What should you attack first?
In this presentation, we’ll look at how to do a security risk assessment of SQL Server. We’ll cover all the common big ticket items, the ones that could lead to a server breach, data loss, or a system becoming unavailable due to mismanagement. Also, we’ll discuss how to assess other items which you may find and how to rank and prioritize them. Armed with this information, you’ll be better equipped to provide a to do list to your management with justifications and relative impact for each proposed change.
If you’re interested in attending the webinar, it’s free but you’ll need to register.
